Global Business Mobility Visa Guide

United Kingdom
#businessvisa #visapolicy

There have been changes in the UK's immigration rules including Graduate Business Mobility Visas. Thus, previous immigration channels that have worked for UK businesses are not functional as per the Home Office's statement on March 15, 2022.

Global Business Mobility Visa

The Global Business Mobility Visa rolled out on April 11, 2022, is a new category of sponsored routes. The greatest candidates for this approach are businesses that want to create a presence in the UK, have a contract with a provider in another country, or need to relocate staff for particular corporate goals. Another benefit of this visa is that an applicant can bring partners and dependents (if any). 

Expand And Reform Various Business Visas

It will create a multi-category-sponsored route to expand and reform numerous business visas. These include Representative of an Overseas Business visa, two types of Intra-Company visas, and Temporary Work – International Agreement Visas. Thus, it opens new doors to sending international workers to the UK as one of the parts of investment by an overseas parent company or a high-value contract.


Who Is Eligible For A Global Business Mobility Visa?

This visa provides five options for those international enterprises who wish to create a presence or relocate workers in the UK. To be eligible, you must be;

  • Graduate Trainees
  • UK Expansion Worker
  • Supplier of Services to the UK
  • Specialist or Senior Worker
  • Worker on the secondment to UK businesses with significant investments or contracts.


Options For Companies Having A Presence In The UK

Specialist or Senior Worker, Worker on the secondment to UK businesses with significant investments or contracts and Graduate Trainees selections for companies with presence in Britain. The remaining options are for those businesses not having a presence in the United Kingdom. But in both cases, sponsorship is required for the employee. 


Different Routes Of Global Business Mobility Visa

There will be five unique routes for Global Business Mobility, each of which relates to a specific kind of temporary employment assignment. These five different routes are discussed below.


1. Senior Or Specialist Worker

The Senior or Specialist Worker route is intended for senior managers and specialists who are allocated to a UK company linked to their employer abroad and seek to complete a temporary assignment in the UK.


2. UK Expansion Worker

The UK Expansion Worker route is intended for foreign workers who want to work temporarily in Britain. Also, those who are either senior management or specialized workers are being sent to the United Kingdom to aid in the company's expansion. 

This one will replace the Representative of an Overseas Business visa route. But it can only be used if the company hasn't begun operating in the UK.


3. Pathway for Graduate Trainees

International workers who are enrolled in graduate training programmes can apply through the Graduate Trainee route. They are required to complete a work placement in the UK by their employer to advance to senior management or a speciality position. 

This path will take the place of the Intra-Company Graduate Trainee route.


4. Secondment Worker Route

The Secondment Worker path is available to foreign workers sent to the UK due to a significant contract or investment from their home country. 


5. Service Supplier Route

The service supplier route is for independent contractors abroad seeking temporary assignments in Britain to deliver services covered by a UK international trade agreement. Or for contractual service suppliers engaged by foreign service providers. 

This route replaced the independent professional and contractual service supplier provisions under the temporary work - international agreement route.
